Ascent Trip Report

The height-of-land road off Rte 125 is now gated and posted, no vehicle access; hoofing it, I quickly found myself alone on foot in the company of many ATVers & Motocross Bikers running a multiplicity of roads with more lands posted along the way to south, reaching the summit going one side road too soon following a miner's hillside cut to a pathway up (built cairn here) across to ridgeline and herd path / bushwhack to the summit clearing where tower road passed by offering a loop back to the main road, chose to retrace my steps after finding benchmarks and checking out the Fire Tower.
